    LG Model: DLG1102W - 7.3 cu. ft. Dryer (Gas) LG Model: WT1101CW - 4.3 cu. ft. Washer PURCHASE DATE: 10/17/2014 Although I am crazy mad in love with my 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Top Load Dryer (the best dryer I have ever owned), I am still trying to accept my 4.3 cu. ft. Large Capacity Top Load Washer Front Control Panel and the low water level. I always wash just about everything on the Bulky/Bedding cycle because the tub fills up with water all the way. On all the other settings the water level barely covers the clothes (of course I stare into the glass top to watch the washing process) and I keep seeing the same clothes on the top that don't seem to go down into the water. I hope someone can explain this process.Till I feel clothes are being washed at the cycle the washer buttons suggest, I am not comfortable with the water level on Cotton, Heavy Duty, etc. All and all they are both heavy duty, well made appliances and very quiet.

    At a superficial glance, this is a nice-looking machine. And it doesn't do a bad job of getting your clothes dry. However, my biggest complaint is that it does NOT give you full control! You cannot set the dryer sensor level and temperature independently to whatever you want. You must choose from their pre-selected combinations. This is unforgivable. Dryers made 20 years ago let you set these parameters to whatever you want. But this brand new LG dryer which probably costs double what you spent on your last one is not capable of doing what your twenty year old dryer could do. That's an absolute deal-breaker for me. I will not buy LG products in the future unless I can confirm that they give the customer full control.

                We replaced our old dryer with this sweet one and we were very pleased first of all by the prompt delivery by Lowes and how nice it fit next to the washer. This is a large capacity dryer that takes up little space. My wife loves this thing. Easy to use and nice features for her sometimes picky preferences for temps and times.

                        Excellent value-tons of features for the money! Workmanship is tight and there's lots of room inside for loads of clothes. When it's washer time, I'll definitely find the matching unit!

                          Best Uses

                            The dryer and its partner washer were bought because of space issues. We installed cabinetry over the washer and dryer when we remodeled our laundry a few years ago. We discovered that newer machines were taller and deeper than the old Kenmores and we looked for units that would fit in and not protrude into the aisle too far. The first LG washer's large lid couldn't open open under the cabinets and we got the front control models instead. The dryer is easy to use and quiet but the "sensor dry"often leaves shirt collars damp. My wife uses the "more dry" and "very dry" settings to get loads the way she wants them. A simple timer allowing you to pick 40 minutes, 60 minutes, etc. would be better than all the automation. Also, the wash and wear items often come out wrinkled.

                                I enjoy doing laundry now with my new dryer. It is easy to use. The front push buttons are convenient. The dryer has nice features. I've only had it about 5-6 weeks, but it has worked great on every load! Not a single load has been left wet, unless I chose to leave it wet.

                                    i purchased this dryer as part of an LG set. We are SO pleased! The capacity is wonderful - it dries large comforters with ease and is great on permanent press items. I no longer dread laundry day - it's a breeze, they're nice to look at and quiet too. I highly recommend this dryer!

                                        This machine has become my friend. I particularly like the little tune it plays for me when it is finished. I only wish it played the tune a little louder. Also, it would be nice if it could fold and put away the close.
